Wait for the waitress

Only one mini for today, with a slight conversion. I'm in love with all the Otherworld ranges, but that's easy, you know. I've picked a few minis with my RT setting in mind. First one is this 'serving wench':

Pic taken from Otherworld web
I somehow saw a sci-fi waitress here. The mini needed some subtle (on not that subtle) adjustements and...

Not that difficult
I used staples and a terminator link to make her left arm look bionic, the rest was just a matter of greenstuff...

And wires!
Clara O'Connor is not what you may call a heroine, she's just a regular waitress at the Sparklin' Pulsar. Young and with little perspective of improvement, she's simply one more of her generation, trying to pay bills and to survive in a hard world.

With the boss at the Sparklin' Pulsar
Some time ago she got the chance... A young man called Kilo Ris bumped onto her and begun to speak nonsense about her being the hope for the future generations, something about her unborn son and stuff like that. Unfortunately the Necron invasion of her homeworld took place just a few days later. Clara shot that Kilo Ris stalker guy in the face with a shotgun and run away. With the planet being invaded, she found a new life as a refugee and after some time she became waitress at the Pulsar in Besenval.

At work!
She may look frail, but take my advice, don't go mess with her...

This is it for today. I made quite a purchase to Otherworld, so you will be seeing more stuff soon... ;)

  6. Fantastic conversion. Really captures that old-school RT feel when you repurpose a fantasy mini so brilliantly.

    1. Thanks! i was aiming for that kind of goofy-yet-decent approach; that combined with the silly Clara O'Connor/Kilo Ris/Necrons reference should be RT tasty enough! :D

  8. Suber you are super creative. Great work! :)
    Now to put a thought into your head that you can never remove. Did you know you just create and painted XMen Cyclops long lost twin sister who lives in a galaxy far far away and has a lot of midichlorians ... oops I think I have mixed up two SciFi universes.
